That is amazing! Still impressive to this day. Nice newsreel, surprisingly good quality. Good that this sort of stuff will not get lost.

Subject: Cool footage
They don't make news-reels like this anymore. Good footage of your typical NASA / Aerospace engineers at controls / control room. Good footage of the rocket fire and liftoff.

I love old newsreels, They have a unique style that can't be seen today. Nice footage of a missile.
